For its 2019 community service project, the Prince Edward County Schools (PECPS) Superintendent’s Student Advisory Council successfully executed a project with assisted living facility The Woodland, Inc. entitled “Warming the Hearts of The Woodland.” Each year the council chooses a project in an effort to better the surrounding Farmville and Prince Edward communities. Students collected supplies throughout the spring semester including toiletries, puzzles and other necessities. On April 26 the students visited The Woodland Inc., distributed supplies to residents, played games with them, and spent time keeping residents company. In addition, four handmade blankets created by the students will be Monday night bingo prizes.
